ive only been involved with public-interest organizations (and heavily) and that really came out on my resume and during the interview. i have a feeling they picked up on the fact that i wasnt really into corporate law, but just wanted to take a random stab at it.
and yes, now that ive recovered from being caught off-guard, im actually really excited about having a free summer! gives me time to go back to China and do everything i haven't been able to do in my undergrad summers.
You have the same background I do. Except I didn't grow up in Bedford, I grew up in Chinatown in the lower east side. I guess I won't be getting the SEO either.
